was a personal visit to osama bin laden. >> i've heard of him once or twice. part of the interest in a book like this, other than it bag great read, is the sort of fear and fascination with terrorism. do you feel like that fear is still as great in the population today as it was, say, ten years ago? >> it seems to be because we're seeing a new kind. they call it the clean skins. these are young men who the counterterrorist forces have never heard of, like the ones who did the boston bombing and the two nigerians who butchered that off-duty soldier in london. these are guys who seem to convert to insane, perhaps, certainly homicidal extremism, where even the drone can't penetrate. they are dangerous because there's no reported of them. they're just not on file. if they're on file, then, yes, usually if there's some big conspiracy involving chemicals and things, then yes, the counterterrorism forces intercept them, get a whisper, someone talks or sneaks. they have agents. when it's just one guy deciding, i am going to go and kill for allah, you can't do anything about it until he strikes. >> when
but the country's capacity for self-inflself-infl icted damage must have astounded even osama bin laden and he points out there is always a nightmare for example of acquiring, terrorists acquiring weapons of mass distraction but nothing would give the terrorists and a greater satisfaction than we focus obsessively on the remote possibility and restrict their lives and liberties accordingly. >> guest: i think this is always a difficult debate. i think if we step back and look at it since 9/11 the united states even though we are one of the most open and free countries has remained frankly open and free. we have continued to have super bowls and have continued to have people travel abroad. we have robust trade with our allies around the world. so this type of limited action i would use the analogy is like a hurricane. we have weather forecast that says there is going to be a storm and we are battening down the hatches and if you live in these places as the storm passes , great but this administration is leaning forward in a way that i think is professionally responsible and they are being advise
a sense of urgery. the one-time personal secretary to osama bin laden runs the yemen-based branch of al qaeda. his group, aqap has proven to be the most aggressive in plotting against american targets. they are home to an explosives expert who targeted u.s.-bound airplanes with bombs hidden inside underwear and computer printers. aqap has been hit hard by sveral u.s. drone strikes, one of which killed their deputy commander earlier this year. still officials warn aqap remains dangerous and capable of inflicting serious damage. on monday the white house with this message. >> we believe it's significant and we are taking it seriously for that reason. >> reporter: the intelligence remains incomplete. u.s. officials stunned at the veteran al qaeda leaders openly discuss possible plots but they still can't say where, when or how an attack will be carried out. counter-terrorism official phil mudd said publicity around the threat could delay potential attacks. >> people who take the step to contemplate the murder of innocents for political cause don't turn back. if we don't take them off the b
is exactly the same as it was pre9/11. it's exactly what osama bin laden said it was, and it's never changed. if you read their magazines, listen to their videos all their statements they point out. they sent their best bombmaker in the world to run part of their organization in algeria. it's the training ground to send fighters to different front all around the world. we have this sense we want to divide anything up and say today yemen is the most dangerous tomorrow algeria, then north africa. the fact is al qaeda's ideology is what's at the core. that's why they are called the base. the base is the uniting factor. that's where it comes electric. taking more terror and spreading ideology and that's that what's them more dangerous. >> good to see you. >>> a massive pipe explosion. it happened near erie. flames shot 300 feet in the air, could be seen for 80 miles. people forced out but most allowed back in this morning. crews shut off a natural gas line but flames expected to burn for several hours. no injuries reported. >>> former isn't of state hillary clinton is do

telling the post, there are owned by an arab country and ran the osama bin laden tapes. i would not trust them. cable channels rely on advertisers for upwards of half of their total revenue. the other half coming from monthly fees. so far al jazeera america getting a backlash. ashley: it is interesting whether they can get a foothold are not, dennis. >> those who are looking for a different slant on the news, sure. the question is, how large is -- largest that audience. ashley: they have plenty of money. they will worry about sponsors. >> getting less and less all the time with the oil production. ashley: thank you very much. good point. tracy: a quarter past the hour. time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes. that's it right down to the floor of the new york stock exchange. we have had back-and-forth action and a lot going forward this week. what are you thinking? >> and thinking i can't wait for this week to be overt. >> you can't think that. think something else. >> everyone is going to look forward to the fed minutes, probably the most important item to try and get a handle on exactl
fiscal year. >> they show how the u.s. used every tool of surveillance to find osama bin laden. in the months before the raid satellites gathered more than 387 images of the compound and an advanced stealth drone flew over pakistan to eavesdrop on communications and a special nsa team gathered intel from mobile phones used by al qaeda operatives. senior correspondent john miller is a former deputy director of national intelligence. good morning. >> good morning. >> did anything in these documents surprise you? >> well, i mean i've seen these budget documents before when i was working in that field, so nothing jumped off the page. although it surprised me they were out. >> what was most damaging? >> i think you take in totality. first, you have to ask, what is this document. it's a budget document. you imagine some very boring excel spreadsheet with a lot of numbers on it. but it's more than that. this is the american intelligent community playbook. what every program is called. what exactly it's for. how much they spend on it. if you turn it inside out and han
what it had to do. you saw president clinton went around all his allies, nato or the u.n., after osama bin laden blew up those east africa embassies in 1998. there's been very limited alliances hitting saddam hussein over various years during the late '90s. there is precedent to this. >> jimmy carter and his carter center in atlanta, peter, they put out a statement earlier today before the secretary of state's comments, before the intelligence assessment release, certainly before the president just spoke at the white house. among other things, the jimmy carter center said this. a punitive military response without a u.n. security councilman date or broad support from nato and the arab league would be illegal under international law and unlikely to alter the course of the war. what do you make of that, peter? >> you know, something can be illegal under international law but still be a le wrgitimate usf force which may seem like a paradox. certainly there is going to be no u.n. resolution. there will not be it looks like a nato kind of collective security article 5 type thing where, you
as it was pre-9/11. it's exactly what osama bin laden said it was. it's more of a change. if you read the magazine if you listen to the videos and all the statements that they point out, they sent their best bombmaker in the world to run part of their organization in algeria, because algeria was the training ground from which they sent their fighters from their different fronts from all over the world. we have this sense that we want to divide all of this to say yemen is the most dangerous area. tomorrow it's algeria, then north africa, and now syria. the fact is al qaeda's ideology is what's at the core. that's why they're called the base. the base is the uniting factor. and that's really where the threat comes from. they're taking more territory and spreading their ideology, and that's what makes them dangerous. >> lara logan, good to see you. thank you. >>> and a massive pipeline explosion this morning in illinois. it happened near erie. flames shot 300 feet in the air. they could be seen for 20 miles. people in 80 homes were forced out, but most are now aloud b
overreact -- i mean, osama bin laden was caught on tape saying he wanted to bleed america to the point of bankruptcy. and if 250,000 people take ciprol because there are tiny envelopes in washington, d.c., this is our own overreaction. it's self-destructive. >> homeland security and, again, i think the total budget's about $40 billion. if it had not been combined, maybe it would have been 32, 33 billion. so we're not talking about that large amount of money. in the overall picture, it has not been that draining. also you said where are bodies? well, if we hadn't stopped the london explosive plot, if we hadn't stopped the times square, the new york subway bombing, the -- actually, we got lucky in the michigan one, there's three or four thousand people right there, that's just three attacks i'm talking about, and there are any number of others that have been stopped. and again, i just wish the rest of the country used the nypd as the model because there's so much cooperation. if somebody does go to buy certain types of explosives, certain devices, that is told the nypd, and they can foll
years al qaeda core has been greatly diminished, not least because of the elimination of osama bin laden. what is also true is that al qaeda and affiliated organizations represent a continued threat to the united states. >> welcome back to "morning joe." it is 22 past the hour. >> 8:22 a.m. eastern time. >> that's when you're at your best, 8:22. that's where you peak. so nicole, it's so fascinating listening to the obama administration talking about the threat from al qaeda. they are balancing so many of the same things that the bush administration balanced. what's interesting is when they put america on high alert, you don't have everybody in the press going, are they doing this for political reasons. aren't you waiting for the first major newspaper to make that suggestion? i haven't heard it yet. >> it is interesting. i think this is a place where where else do we have representative king and jay carney saying exactly the same thing, singing from exactly the same song sheet. it gives us reinsurance about the truth of something incredibly dire and depressing, the threat of terrorism is
story like the killing of osama bin laden. before that you may know her as the managing editor of journalist review. next to rachel we have our next guest. she has gone over to the mainstream and she is eligible for the panel. so did jim agreed to step in and we really appreciate him being here. he is a white house reporter for the huffington post. also part of leadership on capitol hill. she has spent 40 years with the legislative and executive branches. probably a walk in the park for her because she started out with the texas state legislator legislature. again, we thank you for that. next to her he is the bureau chief head in washington, he started as a reporter's reporter. about how he likes we like to describe. he is a third-generation newsman. down at the under the table is alex mueller, who gives us a different perspective. he gives us a graphic perspective and he has background in graphic design and journalism. both were rollcall and for the hill. we have experienced much of the industry. those are our panelists. we are very happy to have all of them here. , i am not g
what i'm going to ask you for a one-word answer. do you believe that osama bin laden for five years in abbottabad pakistan without anyone in the pakistani military intelligence knowing about it? >> no, don't believe it. >> i'm going to ask you for a 10 word answer. [laughter] >> this is my opinion. i don't think general kayani newdow. i don't think the leadership confab don't think there is think there was a plan of what he was that this was 700 meters from the gates of west point. who knows what 700 meters are from the gates of west point but the reality is it was a distinct compound. it was like the fun house at the end of the street where people didn't at the same as everybody else in the neighborhood in an area where people are not actually trusting so somebody facilitated something. i buy into the idea that the ambassador and i were talking about. it probably was not official but someone who has a relationship with an official who is providing help. there is a delegate to ask questions that need to be asked. there's a failure of due diligence. >> sometimes if you read new was s
into a prolonged mi military conflict, and they point out that in 1998, afghanistan failed to kill osama bin laden stirred a hornet's nest, and the bombing in kosovo lasted 198 days. in that environment, what should we do? >> and the stocks momentarily took a dip, and didn't look back, and really a great year despite april, may, involvement in that conflict. and you can look back to many of them that the stock market barely noticed in other events much larger ones such as world war ii or the gulf war, it was a definitive strike of the u.s. that turned the market sentiment around. it is not a big issue for it, market, and it started on domestic concerns and not foreign ones. we have the debt ceiling ahead of us and fed tapering sometimes soon, and those are the issues to be resolved and not the situation in syria. >> all right. the price of oil, and you may be right, and what about the price of oil which is clearly higher and some projections that it could go far higher. >> well, i do agree with jeff, simon, of the lrnlg larger issues, and a confluence of things that are driving the prices down. we
of the criminal trial for osama bin laden's son-in-law. in delaware, my home state, the sequester has meant lengthy employee furloughs at the clerk's office of our bankruptcy court resulting in the postponement of the infrastructure of i.t. infrastructure. the cuts have not been deeper only because that office is already working with 40% fewer staff despite ab increasing case -- an increasing case load. the delaware federal public defender's office has had to furlough its defenders 15 days this year so far, essentially canceling the criminal docket every friday for the rest of this year. every day is another day defendants spend in pretrial incarceration at cost to taxpayers of more than $100 a day. the defender's office has had to sharply curtail expenditures for experts which may be leading to a decrease in the quality of our representation leading to longer prison terms and more avoidable it taxpayer expense. and, frankly, the picture looking forward is still bleaker. next year the federal public defenders' office nationwide are scheduled to take a 23% budget cut. in delaware this means
the training camps were. on 9/11 we did not know that. we knew osama bin laden was back, but that was the extent of our knowledge. the way we kept the country safe was get that intelligence and according to the agency itself, the way we did that was by subjecting him -- because he was subjected more than anybody else to enhanced interrogation techniques. this administration does not get it. they do not. obama made a speech here not too long ago to the national defense university in may and basically said ok, now we are returning back to the pre-9/11 days. we are not at war anymore. we are going back to pre-9/11. we will go try to round up the guys when they blow up. we are no longer on a war footing, if you will, in terms of thinking about the state we're in. i think that is dead wrong. it is an absolute total misreading of where we find ourselves today. as i look at that part of the world am a north africa, a good part of the middle east, not just afghanistan, where they launched 9/11 from, but also yemen and the major struggle underway in egypt, the muslim brotherhood
